"China is going to pay for what they have done to this country and the world"

A US Marine is being investigated after posting a video of himself threatening to kill Asians.

Pfc. Jarrett Morford, 20, uploaded a video of himself saying, “As the honorable Trump said on Twitter today, it was China’s fault. China is going to pay for what they have done to this country and the world.”

Mortford appeared to be referencing the President using the term ‘Chinese Virus’ to describe Coronavirus.

Although Trump has since stated that the virus is “not the fault of Asian Americans”, he came under fire for repeatedly referring to the virus as “Chinese”.

“I don’t give a fuck!” Mortford continued. “A chink-headed motherfucker comes up to me when I’m in the fleet, say 5-5-6 bitch. That’s all I gotta say. Say 5-5-fucking-6!”

5-5-6 references the caliber of bullet used for the M4 and the M16 – the standard rifles issued to Marines.

Montford graduated boot camp in August and is now training for a communications job in Twentynine Palms.

Capt. Joseph Butterfield, a Marine Corps spokesman, said Mortford’s command is taking “appropriate action.”

“There is no place for racism in the Marine Corps,” Butterfield said. “Those who can’t value the contributions of others, regardless of background, are destructive to our culture and do not represent our core values.”
